Kditor Herald: It may be a fact
that the merchant farmer has got
tin- country larmer "beat to a
frazzle." but I rejoice to know that
since April 1 1th. with unfavorable
weather on grass, the frazzles have
been interwoven with clover from
2 to 2 1-2 feet high, and I hope I
( eau say in after years, as 1 can say
for the past, that no merchant farm?
er has ever sold this country farm?
er any baled hay.
Tour reporter seems to have failed]
to understand my motive for exhibit-.
ing the bunch of clover. Being a|
pom insignificant farmer, my object
was not to try and compete with or
excel the better class of farmers, and
especially our merchant farmers who
raise clover on their rich lots, or
in their gardens, but the point I tri?
ed to make was, what poor land
cou,ld be made to produce with acid
? phosphate, a cheap fertilizer, which
your reporter stated I used at the
rate of 300 lbs. to the acre. But
when he reports the clover raised
by *he merchant farmer, nothing was
said about the quality of the land
on which lt was raised, whether it
was j. garden spot made rich by
barn yard manure, or some high

When Halley's comet made its ap?

Jackson (Old Hickory i was then
President of the United States, and
at least three-fourths of thu
of the present country was still a
wilderness. So, there were few sci?

even a bingle observatory had been
established in all America, conse?
quently the masses knew little or
nothing of scientific matters,
This comet was named for S i

he became a sort of trust>. It was
his duty to look after the blood?

Peing a good deal of a sport. Old
Tom used to indulge in these I
himself. Sometimes he and his dogs
would go off miles from the stock?
The guards knew that the vener?

even chased a fugitive over to Cum?

hours with friends. Hut he had no
idea of not returning.
In the fullness of tims possibly at
his own request Price was

is now in the institution, but has
grown weary of the life there.
He wants to get his liberty again.
Faint whiffs of aromatic woodlands
come to him from the hills in Holly?

More than once of late Old Man
Tom has intimated that he would
like a pardon. Comfortable as is
the penitentary and "white" as are
the officials there, he now believes
he would prefer Prince Edward.
As yet no formal petition has been
sent in, but one is liable to come to
Governor Mann almost any day.
